One of india’s best doubles players, Rohan Bopanna has broken the top-10 in the ATP rankings in his category – which got him a direct spot to Rio 2016.
Although Bopanna is yet to win a grand slam title, he came close in 2010, which was arguably the year he first peaked.
He was partnered on that occasion by Pakistan’s Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi, with whom he won a Masters title the following year. Bopanna has three masters titles, winning one with Indian ace Mahesh Bhupathi and another with his now-frequent partner, Florin Mergea of Romania.
In recent years, Bopanna has had more success at Wimbledon, making the semi-finals on two occasions – 2013 and 2015.
He has had widely-publicized issues with Leander Paes, but the two partnered each other to Davis Cup success – and it appears they are able to put their personal differences aside to be able to partner each other effectively at the Olympics.
